As a nonprofit pediatric hospital, Children’s Hospital Colorado’s mission is to improve the health of children through high-quality patient care, research, education and advocacy. And because research and innovation are key to re-imagining and realizing the future of child health, we are pioneering a new Center for Innovation in 2016.
The Center for Innovation at Children’s Colorado will provide an opportunity for innovators to come together to develop groundbreaking ideas that will enrich and save lives through better technology and healthcare.
The Center will establish a clear path for venture development for all team members through education, incubation and acceleration. It will also create a conduit for industry collaboration to bring cutting-edge healthcare technologies to the front-lines of clinical care and enable partnerships with Children’s Colorado innovators.
The goals of the Children’s Hospital Colorado Center for Innovation are to:
The Center will serve as a hub for innovation. It is a place where people come together for education, resources and services to enable the transfer of knowledge and products. Then, the very ideas and products imagined here at Children’s Hospital Colorado will be developed for the benefit of pediatric patients worldwide.
The Center for Innovation will support all innovators at Children’s Colorado who have an idea for improving pediatric healthcare. This includes faculty, staff and administrators.
Children’s Colorado will support the development of ideas that improve the health of kids, such as new drugs, medical devices, diagnostics and digital health technologies. Additionally, if you have an idea for internal process, quality or safety improvements throughout the hospital, you can bring it forward through the Center. This includes ways to improve patient, family or team member experience or information technology ideas.
